Kendall Crosby stands proudly in his new East Side hardware store overlooking Phalen Boulevard. A sleepy Rottweiler sits nearby. Wearing a tie-die shirt and a Western hat, Crosby seems proud of the look and feel of the building.
The store, with its zany, brightly colored walls -- no one the same color, was given a Sustainable St. Paul award for a commercial green building design.

It’s a bustling place, full of dirty laundry.
The vast 72,000-square-foot space, installed on part of the former Stroh Brewery site, processes all the linens from 19 area hospitals and over 150 clinics. That means the facility cleans about 32 million pounds of linen annually.

Seeking to recognize earth-friendly businesses, the Mayor Chris Coleman’s office has for seven years doled out Sustainable St. Paul awards.
This year, two East Side businesses were recognized. Health Systems Cooperative Laundry was given a “Green Practices” award, and Kendall’s received a “Commercial Green Building Design” award.
